Stopped in at CalMoto, looked over the weatheads  :drool: but darn are they $$$$$

Damn right!  I was looking at the K1600B.  $20k, $25k with all the bells & whistles.  So I thought let me look at the RT instead....$23k5!  WTF, that motor has half one third the parts.

FTFY.   A twin boxer vs a six inline :lol:

An aftermarket saddle would fix that. Or GoldBond.
If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.

So, it's a heavier, even more complicated run at what the FJR1300 is. Right, then.

:shrug: I think it's done an amazing job of keeping its core values and the things that make it great while still employing some very nice upgrades that keep it current, not overly done (BMW), not being fully redesigned every 2 years thus losing its identity (plethora of bikes), and while not adding things that are flat out idiotic in their half-assed implementation just to add things to a check list (Connie-14's silly key fob abortive attempt as something useful, as but one example).

$.02

Plus, you can get like an FJR *and* a Bolt or FZ07 for the BMW's price. That's kind of a thing.  :D

I think the FJR is perfect. Slowly evolving yet sooo similar to the original. A first year FJR rider and a new FJR rider can feel like kindred spirits. No need to jump the shark!

Slightly chilly, cloudy day yesterday, so I finally got around to fixing a few things on the new bike.

I knew from reviews that the "rubber" used on some of the bits on the my bike was rubbish, so I inspected it fairly well before I bought it, and I left there with two new turn signal stalks in a box, because the ones on it were cracking already...

And..... I've been dragging those around with me for over three months...

Turns out to have been a pretty simple swap. All the wiring up front on the bike ends up inside the headlight, so I had to remove two bolts to drop the headlight down, and then one little screw to get the lens off. The wires on the turn signals are color coded, so even a non-mechanical idiot like me couldn't screw that up.... remove the bolt on the stalks, trace the wires, pull the old ones, thread through the new ones, button everything back up..

I also fixed one of my bar end grips. The bushing that compresses and holds it in was chewed up (did I mention all the rubber on this Taiwanese made bike are rubbish?) Disassembled it, sanded it down a little so it was smoother, and reinstalled.

Weather permitting, I'll probably change the oil and clean the air filter next week.

Still haven't taken any long rides on it, but it has come in super handy for quick trips to the grocery store and such.

Oh, and while I had my brand spanking new metric wrenches out (I had to pick up a set when I bought the bike....) I re-tightened all the bolts on my cheap Harbor Freight hitch mounted carrier. There were a couple that were a little loose, but none of them were "scary" loose. Plan is to check them each time I stop for an extended stay.

Thus ends my day of wrenching. Thankfully it's a dead simple design, because thus ends the extent of my mechanical knowledge as well :-) I blame my dad. He could barely change the oil in our cars when I was growing up. Don't underestimate the gift of having a mechanically inclined parent....

Got the clutch back together on the FJR.

Filed down the ridges on the basket and boss. Checked the thickness of the fibers and came in at 2.9 to 3.0. like a new clutch. Not bad for almost 100,000 miles.

My Roadcrafter split a zipper late in autumn.  Last week, I shipped it back to Duluth for repairs.  New hip zipper and a couple wrist zipper pulls need replacing.  With shipping, it'll be back in my hands for under $80.  Turnaround is 3-4 weeks, but hey, it's not like I miss it at the moment.  :lol:   


It's went straight into the queue for repair because i preauthorized the expenses.  Hell, other than washing, it's the first money it's cost me in 11 years and a shit ton of miles.

Rode it!  And made a wee adjustment on the right side fuel tap.
Call me Mel. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me at home, I thought I would ride about a little and see the other parts of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen and regulating the circulation.

Is. I'm on my second after doing over a 100K on my first in 4 years.

I just like the way THAT K16 looks.  I wouldn't even consider buying a BMW.

It could at any time. I have the cash I'm just waiting on the sale of the Bandit. I have a guy who is supposed to pay in the next week or so but I have held back so I owe what the trade would be.


The finance girl is really cute so I've had to break it up into multiple visits.

Tie-dye it with bleach, black usually goes orange or greenish yellow that way.

PS. Bleach spray cleaner is good for that, too. Less likely to dissolve the fibers.

PPS. Nice shirt. :thumbsup:

I was. Even though I feel it's (the Scout) probably one of the prettiest bikes around it was just a bit off as far as seat and feet positioning. This is more comfortable and also very pretty. I like pretty.
Also since it's basically just a toy to rip around and make noise on as the Scout would have been, $4500.00 it's much easier to justify than $13,500.00 when it was all said and done with the Indian.

This is interesting trying to figure out when one can't see photos.  I've deduced that it's a Harley.

I'm done. Good day.

It was fun while it lasted.

So, have you ridden those three back-to-back? What did you think?

I rode the Bonneville on Tuesday, the sportster yesterday. Both are great fun. At 60mph the need for a windshield was apparent. My knees feel better on the HD.

Took it for a ride and brought it home.
